During our BIG Assembly for December (it was held in January), the third graders were able to show the school something that they've been working on. They have been working really hard on learning their multiplication facts (thanks to their awesome teachers, Mrs. Barber and Mrs. Larsen), and they showed the school some different beats that they use to help them remember the facts. They did a great job! Thanks for sharing that with us!
The students who were honored by both their teachers and bus drivers for being the Ambassadors of the month for December, were announced when school resumed in January. These students were picked because they were helpful. Congratulations to those who received this honor. Both teachers and bus drivers rely on our helpful students.
Yesterday, your student should have brought home a flyer and envelope for our Service Fundraiser for the American Heart Association. They can collect funds from family and friends who are willing to donate. All funds raised will go directly to the American Heart Association to help with research on heart health. On the front flap of the donation envelope, you will find information on setting up an online site that your child can use to help send out emails to non-local family and friends, who can then donate online. This is optional, and instructions can be found on paragraph 3 of the envelope. All funds and envelopes will be due back to our school no later than January 27th. If you have any questions, please call the school.
Just a reminder, that there will be NO SCHOOL on Friday, December 23rd for the Christmas Holiday. School will resume on Tuesday, January 3rd. The faculty and staff at Goshen Elementary would like to wish all of our school families a Merry Christmas, and a safe and Happy New Year!
Goshen School will hold their annual Christmas Sing-A-Long tomorrow (Thursday, December 21) at 9:30. Parents are invited to come listen to the sounds of Christmas, through the voices of our students. The kids have been hard at work, learning their Christmas Carols, and maybe even a little dance or two. Come enjoy the season with us!
The students at Goshen Elementary got a surprise today, when the PTA Elves visited their classes. They brought with them a little bit of Christmas Cheer, along with a candy cane for each student. We would like to thank the PTA for everything they do for the students at our school.
Penny Wars are on again! Please bring in your extra change to help those in need in our area! Put the pennies in YOUR grades container and use the SILVER BOMBS to take out your opponents! The war will go from Monday 12/12 through Friday 12/16. Who will win? GOOD LUCK to all of the grades!
We were ablet to have a Principal's 200 Club meeting this week. The students are able to earn rewards, and the chance to be put into a drawing for a special activity with Mrs. DeGraffenried for doing good things around school. This week the Club met and made Graham Cracker Gingerbread Houses. They sure turned out cute! A "Good Job" goes out to all of those students that received the Principal's 200 Award! Keep up the good work!
